It's on! SOTX athletes, law enforcement officers from across the state and supporters of the movement attended the annual Statewide Law Enforcement Torch Run Kickoff this morning at the Capitol.  The kickoff is a prelude to Summer Games, set for May 23-26, in Arlington.  More than 3,000 SOTX athletes will compete in soccer, cycling, gymnastics, basketball, athletics and tennis events during the four-day competition.  At this morning's event, members of several law enforcement agencies ran side by side from the Capitol through downtown Austin after the ceremonious lighting of the torch.  Once the torch passes through each of SOTX's 19 areas, the Summer Games will officially begin!
